Not sure what to say?

Papa....I miss you SO much. I know it's weird for your own daughter to write in your guest book, but I wanted to. Not a second goes by that you are not in my heart. I am comforted by fact that you are not suffering anymore. I am thankful that I was there for you and by your side, day to day, night to night, to help you and take care of you.

It is only with the promise of the one true God that we know and understand that death is just the beginning. Thank...

We are so sorry to hear of Wilfred's passing. At this difficult time you are all in our thoughts and prayers. David just got his tractor running the same day. We were thinking about him and how much he probably loved riding old Allis. We love you. God bless you all.
